Cron Job at Every 15 Minutes in Linux

Last updated on Jan 2, 2020 in Linux

Set up a cron job in Linux to call script at every 15 minute.

Open Crontab

You can use your favorite text editor to open the file:

$ vim /etc/crontab

Add “*/15 * * * *” to The Crontab

If your script name is /home/theuser/script.sh, add the following line to the end of the file to make it run in every 15 minutes:

*/15 * * * * /home/theuser/script.sh

The entry */15 sets the running “at every 15 minutes”.
